said in this article. so i apologize for putting on my glasses, but you said, "america has been infiltrated on all levels by radicals who wish to harm america. they have infiltrated us at the cia, at the fbi, at the pentagon, at the state department. they're being radicalized in radical mosques, in our cities and communities within the united states." first, i've just got to ask you because i read this and it harkened back to the worst form of mccarthyism of the 1950s, who are these people? where are the names and what proof do you have that there are people who are radicals trying to undo our society in these institutions of government? >> well, i was talking about the muslim brotherhood project which has been presented as evidence in the holy land foundation trial in 2007 in texas, which is the largest ever terrorism trial taken by the united states government. and terrorism financing, where 108 guilty verdicts were handed down. in that trial, a project written by the muslim brotherhood, a 100-year plan for radical islam to infiltrate and dominate the west, was presented. the

to court demanding that the nuclear regulatory commission provide a permanent place to store america's waste. there are 104 operating reactors, they're scattered across 65 plants in 31 different states. if you take a look at this map, this gives you a better idea of exactly where this 63 thousand tons of spent fuel, the darker the color of the state, the more radioactive waste that state has, according to the nrc. again, we're talking about 63,000 tons of spent fuel. if you take a look, with the telestrator working, illinois is the state with most, 776 tons. coming in second place is pennsylvania. as we know, pennsylvania, the site of three mile island, the nuclear site that had zadisaste back in the late '80s. and 3,700 tons of spent fuel. pretty much a tie with north carolina and south carolina here. let me show you a map quickly that illustrates what we're talking about when we say spent fuel. these are the spent fuel pools. they're steel-lined concrete pools filled with water like this one. similar to the ones we talked about at japan's fukushima plant that overheated which allow
